Details on the New Internet TV Plug-in for Media Center
got some additional details on the new
Internet TV plug-in that Microsoft will launch later this month. This is a great move for Microsoft. One of the advantages of Media Center is the
ability to bring video content from different sources. The problem has been that several of the
companies currently providing on demand content are charging for it and most
have been less than successful in my view.
The Internet TV plug-in will provide ad supported content (from
major providers I assume), but will only be available in the US. The categories
shown on the beta plug-in include Sports, Entertainment, News, Top Picks, Music
and Movies. See
the gallery at Engadget for a few more photos.
Stick around because later this month more details
will be announced at DigitalLife in New York City.
